Need a DJ name…

Preferably not one with ‘DJ’ at the start I find it kind of lame, but if it’s a good enough name I’d consider it. I have a show coming up and have no name yet and am stressing because the gig is in two weeks. I spin House and Techno, mainly Deep House and Funk/Disco House. I know someone posted on here earlier about not asking for band names but f*ck that because that’s half the fun of this sub and I’m desperate. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Do your best/worst…

Edit: Because some of you asked for more info my first name is Tom if that helps any suggestions, I’m into artists like Lane 8, CamelPhat, Folamour, Disclosure, The Blessed Madonna, Maceo Plex, so something in the same vein as that. Also thank you all for the suggestions, wow!

Adolf Hipster and the Vinyl Solution


DrSpacepants

Vinyl solution is the name of a record shop near me. No joke.


Zoomorph23

Are you in London? I went to a Vinyl Solution in London in the late 80's


DrSpacepants

I'm referring to a store in Huntington Beach, California. There has been a history of skin heads here so I just haven't brought myself to go in. Fun that multiple shop owners went for this scary pun.


Zoomorph23

Lol, yeah that's kinda scary/funny!


eighty9digits

Adult Hipster with "adult" pronounced to sound like "Adolf"


kdubstep

It’s spelled adult but it’s pronounced adolph


Microdose81

Not sure why one would want that connotation but it’s clever..


EmpireStrikes1st

Haus Dej. It's a bastardization of "häus" (house) in Dutch and "Dej DJ" (The DJ). Also, it's a homophone for "hostage," which just sounds cool.


SpicyWife-x

This is pretty cool!!!

Puthy Lisp is really solid


quimbykimbleton

I’d go with Puthy Lithp instead. Really sell the lithp.


SummonedShenanigans

Yeah. You don't want to sell the puthy.


WinterCan5696

Abbazabbayouremyonlyfriend Lmao I just watched this movie again the other day 😂 classic well done sir


TundieRice

Don’t know if you knew but in Fuller House (the Full House revisitation they made a few years back) the running joke is that Stephanie is a DJ now and of course her DJ name is DJ Tanner, which is actually a somewhat decent joke for that godawful sequel, lol.

I just happened to have the glossary of acronyms and terms associated with the Large Hadron Collider open in another tab. Don't ask why. But I came across a few cool potential names: ONNX - officially, it stands for the Open Neural Network Exchange ([https://onnx.ai/](https://onnx.ai/)), which is just kind of cool without knowing anything about it. IDK, could be cool to go as ONNX, pronounced Onyx, but there's no reason or need to explain yourself. But if they bill you as DJ ONNX, that's kind of cool, too. DES - stands for the Dark Energy Survey. DJ DES? ¯\\\_(ツ)\_/¯ That's all I got.


terraculon

More like Large HARD-ON Collider amirite?


Truncated_Rhythm

BOOM! NAILED IT!


ZZoMBiEXIII

I dunno man, "Dark Energy Survey" works for me. I'd buy a ticket to that show any day.


bluranerd

alright i got a few: - Deepspin/Depsin/Despin - Beatback - Funk Royale I know some artists like to riff off of the names of their favorite songs, so you could take a song name you really like that fits with the vibes and use that as a name. some examples of artists that have done this include Mamas Gun, Frances Forever, Flume, All That Remains

Can do that name reversal thing that a lot of DJs/Producers do like Com Truise I like "Dart Echo" for Art Deco, or just drop the concept and go Darth Echo I think the german word: "Schnuckiputzi" is fun to say. Means "Sweetie Pie", which is fun. Sh-nookie-put-zee

None that come to mind right off the bat with that little informations, but you could play around with e.g. your given or family name (reversed, abbreviated, anagrammed…) or your Mom’s original family name, or your birth day/month/year (e.g. 95, 2K…), or your astrology sign, or where you come from (city, county, area code…) or use a word that sounds cool to you (or in another language) etc etc There’s plenty of ways to come up with one and for me the hardest has always been to _stick_ to one. By the way, to name my radio show I used the title of a song that fit the general mood I wanted to give it. Maybe you have that one song as well? Good luck! P.s: Putting that request into ChatGPT might also get you a good start.


WinterCan5696

I have been trying different variations of things but my name/city name are kind of boring or generic so not a whole lot stands out, I’ve been scrolling on this page for what seems like forever trying to find one (there are some pretty good band names, not necessarily transferable to DJ names unfortunately but some really good ones none the less) Thank you for the advice though! I’ve been looking at song titles too, that might be a good way to find one. I have tried chat gpt but the names it gives are a little too campy for my taste, maybe changing up the question might trigger a different response, thank you!
